Camber negative is often used in various modification streams that are currently being used by many car enthusiasts in the world. Modifications in this section require the modifier to determine the tilt angle of the wheel axle and vertical axis so that it can produce the appearance of a car tire that is conical out.
This modification has many pros and cons that circulate among automotive enthusiasts, some automotive enthusiasts consider modifications like this to be a dangerous thing, because they can damage parts of vehicle tires and reduce handling on the vehicle. These assumptions are not completely wrong either. Then, how do you adapt the proper negative camber ?
Adaptation of the Motorsport Event
When the camber modification is done with an excessive tilt angle, camber can basically damage the tires on your vehicle, because the tilt angle provided by this camber modification itself will put an excess load on the inside of the wheel, compared to the outside.
In fact, this is not entirely true, because Men Intersport also have to look again at the use of the car that applies these modifications. Basically, this negative camber modification is a modification adapted from motorsport activities .
Where at a certain speed, each car that is racing will need a tilt angle on their vehicle tires. The negative camber imposed on cars used in motorsport can help drivers to keep getting maximum traction and grip when in corners at high speed.
In the motorsport event , each team will usually equip each vehicle that is competing with negative camber specifications with a tilt angle of 3 to 5 degrees. The tilt angle is considered to be the safest tilt angle and is not easy to damage vehicle tires.
The various pros and cons that circulate regarding this camber modification should not be seen only from one point of view, because again this modification is an adaptation of the motorsport event where maximum control and durability of the car itself are needed.
When viewed from a functional point of view, negative camber modifications were made for the needs of a car used on a race track, then this modification was the right decision. Because this modification will help the driver to devour the existing tracks.
The functional side of the race track will definitely differ from the functional requirements, the needs of urban roads, or the daily car needs. To apply modifications in your daily car, of course there will be many more factors that affect the functionalities of negative camber modifications .
Camber Modification For Daily Cars
It’s okay if the daily car that the Intersport Man uses has or will apply negative camber modifications to your car. However, it still needs to be reviewed its functions and needs. Maybe some of the Intersport Men who have applied this modification, use their car to devour the race track on weekends, so the application of this modification will be very helpful.
Still, it will be legal even if it is only used for daily needs. However, a safe tilt angle must remain the main key to this modification style.
Apart from using a safe tilt angle, still some of us have seen or applied this negative camber modification outside of the recommended safe angle.
Agree or not, according to Intersport, the appearance resulting from this negative camber modification has its own uniqueness, there are also many streams of modification that require this negative camber aspect . One example is the Hellaflush modification school .
The wide appearance combined with the body kit and over fenders combine harmoniously to create a car that is unique and has a sporty impression.
Even though it has a unique appearance and hangout, the safety and comfort functions should not be forgotten, it will be useless if the vehicle you modify becomes unsafe to use.
Often times some modifiers only focus on the final appearance only. Not paying attention to the specifications on the parts used and making it have performance that is beyond its maximum capacity. So that the safety factor is not optimal, and tends to be dangerous.
One way that you can still get the safety factor from a car that applies negative camber modifications is to use quality and reputable aftermarket parts .
In addition, the correct calculation of the maximum load on tires must also be implemented, because otherwise the assumptions at the beginning of this article will become real. Some cases that occur are when the tire cannot accommodate the maximum wind pressure, the tire will be susceptible to damage which can cause unwanted things such as damage to the skin of the tire to cause tire rupture while driving.
